Violence

I am looking for resources for women whose partners are addicted to porn. I have been trying to heal from a past sexual assault, but this has made it impossible. I would deeply appreciate any information or referrals.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. Because you said that you were "trying to heal from a past sexual assault" I assume that you already have resources/outlets for yourself. I say this because--as you have Identified, these are two different issues--one, healing yourself, and two, getting help for your partner. I just wanted to make sure that each is being weighted equally. With that assumption here are groups to contact re: getting suggestions for other groups specifically working to cut "addiction to porn." "Men's groups" are a good place to start for references:

  • Men's' Issues Discussion Group,
    Reed College,
    3203 NE Woodstock Blvd.,
    Portland, OR 97202.
  • Men Stopping Rape, Inc.
    PO Box 316,
    306 North Brooks Street,
    Madison, WI 53715.
  • National Organization for Men Against Sexism,
    c/o MOVE,
    54 Mint Street,
    Suite 300,
    San Francisco, CA 94103.
  • Students Organizing Against Pornography,
    Dept. of Philosophy,
    Miami University,
    Oxford, Ohio 45056.
You should contact Diana Russell, who is an "expert" on ending pornography. She is a professor at Mills College. Good luck to you and your partner - thanks.
